This year, the MFIN team is trying something new - virtual, full network meetings on an every-other-month schedule. All network members and farm to institution practitioners and supporters are welcome to attend. Join us to learn more, network, and engage in helping farm to institution programs grow and track progress.

All network meetings will be held through Zoom, a virtual video conferencing platform. In advance of each meeting, we will send a registration link for the Zoom meeting. Once you register, you will get the link to join the upcoming meeting at the appointed time and date.
